Rt Rev Andrew McLellan, former Moderator of the Church of Scotland, has spoken out in favour of a Yes vote. He said "The worst thing in Scotland is Trident. September 18 is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to remove the worst thing in Scotland. Speaking against nuclear weapons is good, and praying for their abolition is good. But what will change everything is voting Yes in the referendum. Living in a Scotland free of nuclear weapons will make everything else better".

Conservative, Labour and Green party politicians in Cornwall have firmly rejected the idea that Falmouth could be turned into a store for nuclear weapons. This proposal was central to the recent RUSI report which argued that a Yes vote would result in Trident remaining in Scotland until 2028, after which the nuclear weapons would be moved to Falmouth. The strong local opposition to this proposal kills it stone dead before it has taken off the ground.

Reading my nice shiny Scotland's Future handout, I was gob-smacked by the absence of the dreaded "T" word. Of all the reasons for being proud of the Scottish Government, none is greater than its rejection of Trident.
This is its trump card in the referendum, and it is not being played. Apart from saving on the colossal running costs, and the £100 billion for its replacement, rejection is the only principled position to take on nuclear weapons of mass destruction (WMD).
